TESSERAE EXHIBITION at 2nd City Council Gallery

TesseraeInstallation 2


TESSERAE, The Art of Mosaic was the third juried mosaic exhibition hosted by the Second City Council Gallery and Performance Space in Long Beach, CA. It was organized by LUZ MACK-DURINI and DAWN MENDELSON, under the direction of the CHERYL BENNET.  I had the honor to select the work for the show and took the opportunity to interview four artists and two organizers, using Skype (to California, England and Italy). The interviews were assigned QR codes that were posted in the gallery and linked to the audio files.

 LINDA MARTIN speaks about her mosaic studio practice and the making of "Ashley Lies."
